Introduces basic concepts of differential and integral calculus for students majoring in management and social science. Includes elementary differential and integral calculus of polynomial, logarithmic and exponential functions, and their applications to business, management and social sciences. A graphing calculator is required. TI-83 or TI-84 recommended.
1. Student will use mathematical functions to model both real-world and theoretical applications from the general, social, and management sciences.
2. Student will apply the basic techniques of differentiation and integration to polynomial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions to investigate the behavior of mathematical models from the general, social, and management sciences.
3. Student will understand, apply, and interpret the relationships between derivatives and antiderivatives in applied and theoretical models.
4. Student will interpret and analyze how the techniques of differentiation and integration apply to models of marginal analysis and rates of change.
5. Student will use the topics from calculus in conjunction with the graphing calculator to obtain precise graphs of models, including a graphical analysis of rates of change, concavity, and extrema for the model.
